Welcome to AshiMyo Bodywork!
At AshiMyo (AhsheMyoh), the foot is key and the client rules.
This luxurious, yet highly effective, modality will change what you expect and desire from a massage.
AshiMyo is deep compression effleurage with long, slow, flowing strokes by the massage therapist's feet using the power of the legs and the weight of the body to impact the deeper muscle layers as well as more accessible surface tissues. The focus is on clearing myofascial adhesions and releasing locked muscle tissue for greater over-all mobility without causing screaming pain . Ashi, or barefoot, massage is ideal for those who prefer deep massage as well as those with thick or well-developed muscles who have trouble feeling the impact of massage done with the hands. It is particularly effective on the muscles of the shoulders, the length of the spine, lower back, glutes & hamstrings, and is often chosen by athletes, as well as people with pain in those areas. This treatment will induce deep relaxation, relieve tight muscles and stimulate the body's own self-healing capabilities.
AshiMyo diverges from a traditional ashiatsu massage by virtue of seamless strokes at glacier pace. The slowness allows the feet to pick up on the smallest nuances beneath the skin, encouraging trigger point and myofascial release. The long, slow slide reassures the muscles and engenders a drop into the parasympathetic state, where your natural regenerative processes begin to make repairs at the cellular level. It is very common for clients to slip into sleep.Snoring is considered a tremendous compliment!
AshiMyo massage is performed on a standard massage table on bare skin with cream or oil, using overhead bars for the therapist's balance and to hold weight off the client's body when appropriate. The client is always appropriately draped, for comfort as much as modesty.
At AshiMyo Bodywork, we strive to provide superior service and an exceptional experience every time. Each session is customized to the individual’s needs and expected outcome.
Our goal is to return muscles to their optimum fluidity, induce postural balance, and support natural healing mechanisms. Climb onto the heated, well-padded table and let us hit your body's reset button while you float in inner space.
